[br]you grabbed both electrodes? hopefully not with both hands, that's an easy way to get yourself killed.

you're lucky to still be here. I'm not surprised your heart skipped a couple of beats, and probably literally too. Gripping like that gives a current path straight through your chest. I've been zapped by a 25,000 volt cattle fence, but luckily it was just through my leg to ground. I was more surprised than hurt by it, but it certainly wasn't pleasant.

Yea it usually is more surprise than pain, but this was different. I just felt really weird for like an hour after I did it. Like there was a weight on me or something. Kinda hard to explain the feeling. The thing that shocked me was actually only 220 something volts, but the amps were really high. I don't know, I probably wouldnt do it again unless I was drunk or something [:p] but it definitely looked really sweet on camera

Electric fences are usually the other way around, with high voltage and low current for safety reasons. It's the current that kills. (.1 amps will kill)

[br]i have a 100,000 volt stun gun, and i dont know why so many people says it hurts, cause it really doesnt. I dont know maybe ive just been shocked so much that im used to it or something, but ive just never noticed any pain.

Now PAIN came from when for a dare, my friend took a out the control center for his electric fence and turned it to max power. I grabbed both electrodes. I swear i jumped atleast 5 feet back and my heart skipped two beats

100,000 isnt too bad, make sure you have fresh batteries, and it may hurt a little more, you sadistic person you[:p]

Well this fence was supposed to be keeping in bulls, so maybe that has to do with somehting? I don't know why it was 220, but I clearly remember thats what it was (I see it every time I watch the video)

and about the stun gun. You bet I keep it fully charged :D I like to take it to the skate park to shock all the stoned people. They go crazy cause they dont know whats happening to them [:p]

whos jon03? before my time or something?

and i do have common sense. There are spots in the park that are completely hidden that the people like to go to. And when i shock them, do you really think theyd go tell the cops??
